Was Jodhaa bai the elder daughter of Rajput King Bharmal actually emperor Akbar's wife ?? Various texts refer to her as Mariam and Jahangir's mother, the successor of Akbar. Well, The Jahangirnama written by Jahangir as such doesn't mention Jodhaa bai but it does mention about Mariam as his mother. Some texts also refer Jodhaa bai as Jahangir's wife. The Akbarnama written in three volumes by Abul Fazal- one of the nine jems in Akbar's court also does not cite Jodhaa bai.
So, my question is did Jodhaa bai exist? If yes then what was her true identity- Mariam, princess of amber,akbar's third wife, Jahangir's mother or Jahangir's wife?
